Republic of Greenwich Village

 The 24th of this month will mark the 100th anniversary of the declaration of “The Independent Republic of Greenwich Village”. On the evening of January 24th 1917 a group of Greenwich Villagers and the artist Marcel Duchamp ascended the stairs in the Washington arch to a room at the top where they partied before going to the roof. They decorated the edges of the roof with colored crepe paper, shot off cap guns and declared the Independent Republic of Greenwich Village.
